A sunny Perth day has significant repercussions for these two sides as we head towards the halfway mark of BBL09.

Perth Scorchers and Hobart Hurricanes both sit outside the top five, having played five games each. They have both enjoyed a mix of good and bad moments so far in the tournament, with the Scorchers coming off a fine win vs Heat, whereas the Hurricanes lost to the same team after an inexplicable decision to bowl first two nights ago.

Amid the talent on show in this one, which side will hold their nerve better in the important stages?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • D’Arcy Short has looked out of form in recent matches. The leading run-scorer over the past two seasons is coming off scores of 0 and 25 (24).
  • Short vs Scorchers: 36, 11, 34 and 13. Can he carry on from those starts and hit form when his team needs him?
  • George Bailey is the top run-scorer in Hurricanes-Scorchers matches (271 runs at 31.00). He scored an incredible 69 (39) on this ground last season to seal a chase.
  • Cameron Bancroft has two 50s in his past four BBL09 innings.
  • Josh Inglis and Liam Livingstone have had their positive moments so far in BBL09. Can they make more significant contributions?
  • Mitchell Marsh so far in BBL09: 32 (33), 56* (24), 14 (15), 17 (13), 26 (19). Primed for a big one today?
  • Ashton Turner has had an underwhelming BBL09 so far. But, he averages 35.75 in eight games vs Hurricanes.
  • Chris Jordan has taken eight wickets in five games this season.
  • Fawad Ahmed is coming off a man-of-the-match display (3/16) vs Heat. He comes up against a Hurricanes side that couldn’t quite get going vs spin a few nights ago.
  • Ashton Agar vs Hurricanes: Eight wickets in five games.
  • Riley Meredith in BBL09: Nine wickets in five games. Qais Ahmad has seven in five matches, and has a key role to play in Perth.
  • Jhye Richardson has four wickets in his past three games.

Head-to-Head

  • Matches 11, Scorchers 6, Hurricanes 5.
  • The Hurricanes have won the past three meetings.

Key to a Perth Scorchers win

There is no Scorchers batsman in the top 10 run-scorers in BBL09. Highest is Mitchell Marsh in 14th position with 145 runs. So, onus is on the Scorchers’ top order to push on with the starts they have been getting in recent matches to put the pressure on a Hurricanes side that went the journey last game vs Heat.

However, the Scorchers’ attack is taking shape nicely. All six of their bowlers were in the wickets in their last game vs Heat. Seeing how the Hurricanes have generally struggled to find the boundary regularly in BBL09, an opportunity awaits the Scorchers to build pressure on the top order and force them to play get-out-of-jail shots.

BBL09 Match 24: PS vs HH Preview Dream11: A big game for Mitch Marsh.

Key to a Hobart Hurricanes win

Like the Scorchers, the Hurricanes have a bit of a batting problem. Like the Scorchers, the Hurricanes have no batsman in the top 10 run-scorers in BBL09. The highest is D’Arcy Short, also on 145 runs, which calls for the Hurricanes batting lineup to do more than their plethora of 20s in the last game.

Also, can the Hurricanes, led by Riley Meredith, make inroads into the Scorchers top four? The Hurricanes need to stick to their task well, as the Scorchers batsmen have made a habit this season of getting out after making a start.

BBL09 Match 24: PS vs HH Preview Dream11: Riley Meredith will be key in Perth.

Possible Playing 11

Perth Scorchers have named an unchanged 13-man squad from their win vs Brisbane Heat. There is a good chance they’ll play the same XI.

Perth Scorchers: 1. Josh Inglis (wk), 2. Liam Livingstone, 3. Cameron Bancroft, 4. Mitchell Marsh (c), 5. Ashton Turner, 6. Cameron Green, 7. Ashton Agar, 8. Chris Jordan, 9. Matt Kelly, 10. Jhye Richardson, 11. Fawad Ahmed

Hobart Hurricanes have made one forced change with James Faulkner out with a calf injury. Tom Rogers comes into the 13-man squad, but Scott Boland could be the man to replace Faulkner and make his Hurricanes debut.

Hobart Hurricanes: 1. D’Arcy Short, 2. Caleb Jewell, 3. Ben McDermott (c & wk), 4. David Miller, 5. George Bailey, 6. Simon Milenko, 7. Clive Rose, 8. Nathan Ellis, 9. Qais Ahmad, 10. Riley Meredith, 11. Scott Boland

Perth Stadium Pitch Report and Conditions

A warm day is forecast for Perth (a top of 33 degrees and sunny). In terms of the surface, the Perth Stadium pitch has had a little bit in it for everyone so far in BBL09: some bounce for the bowlers but freedom for the batsmen to hit confidently through the line if good enough.
